Rootbeer Chocolate Chip Pancakes


Oh boy, where do I begin with these? It was a random Saturday, and we wanted to make something different for breakfast. We decided to change up the regular pancake recipe. These ended up being very yummy…the rootbeer flavor wasn’t too strong, so feel free to add to your desired taste!

This is a recipe from Betty Crocker that I ended up making one day when I had the craving for something with bananas and chocolate chips! These are so tasty that I didn’t even frost them! They were so delicious that they didn’t even need the frosting. That’s a pretty amazing feat if I should say so myself!

Banana Chocolate Chip Cupcakes
(makes about 24)

1 box yellow cake mix
2 very ripe bananas – mashed – about 1 cup
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup butter – softened
3 eggs
3/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
1 container chocolate frosting (optional)

Heat oven to 375°. Put paper liners in your cupcake tin.
In a large bowl, beat the cake mix, bananas, water, butter, and eggs until smooth.
Using a spoon, stir in the chocolate chips.
Spoon batter evenly into the pan.
Bake 18-22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Remove to wire racks to cool.
Cool completely – about 30 minutes.
Frost as desired.

Enjoy 🙂
